Since this will be broadcast during the PBS November pledge drive, wonder if there will be a special "Beatles Gift Set" that will be offered.. with a substantial pledge... perhaps a special THREE disc edition of the film? Along with other Beatles DVDs and/or CDs, coffee mugs and T-shirts? Just wondering... we'll have to report what the special offers are at different stations
Am going to watch it on PBS tomorrow evening. Will make a note of the special offers. Good idea!!
I think the pledge drive was broadcast on a national feed, not local... during "pledge break" they had taped interviews/messages from Larry Kane and Giles Martin. On my PBS station, they're going to rebroadcast the movie about 4 more times over the course of the next month. For the special "perks" of making a contribution they offered the following: 2 disc DVD edition of "Eight Days a Week" 1964 Tour booklet, featuring photos and write-ups about each stop Then depending on level of contribution were added: CD of the remastered performance of the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl Tote Bag & Mug with picture of each Beatle and "I Watch PBS Eight Days a Week"
Here's the info. And wouldn't it be great seeing Paul in a venue like this? Truly "One On One": Bruce Springsteen will make his Broadway debut this fall with a nearly eight-week solo show at the 960-seat Walter Kerr Theatre -- among the smallest venues he's played in the last 40 years.
I think everyone would love to see Paul do something like this I saw the Joad tour and 15 shows on the Devils and Dust tour which were all incredible (both solo tours) and my guess is this will be more like the D&D tour with him playing multiple instruments. I'm sitting these shows out, but I am sure they will be fantastic Good luck to those trying for tix!! (I've seen him in smaller venues )

And of course, there is frank, witty, and sometimes blunt com
Pretty good band! Of course, they are getting the inevitable "The New Fab Four" comparisons, which I'm sure they are sick of hearing. They are working with Chris Thomas, of "The White Album" and Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon."
